Looks a little cold to go down and get in the water. How long until spring?

But if there is no ice in the water, it shouldn't be a problem to ride :rollgrin:

Yup, but I must say, if THAT in the picture is where he foils (I hope not), my respect because it looks super gusty if it is so small as it looks with mountains all around :o :naughty:

That water out there is the Hood River Event Site, so lots of people foil there. :)

Water is currently 2ºC/36ºF, air is about the same.

Aaah, okay, perfect when hood river - on the pic it looked like a small lake, my mistake sorry :wink:

2 degree celcius water is what we have here too in Denmark, lots of riders out - so as others say, it can be done quite easy.
